On emotions

Here is an article on the relationship between emotion and cognition. And here is a commentary. I'm beginning to think that emotion and cognition are not two distinct things/processes. But it's so difficult to think in other terms. Just like you cannot stop thinking, you cannot stop feeling, and you cannot stop acting. Try and see how uncomfortable it is even to try for five minutes. If so, can we really talk about three different things as thinking, feeling, or acting?
